Re: Helen Ploskina
The tour was probably a little bit disappointing for her, but she'll bounce back. Found this news profile of her from the youtube channel, no clue what they are saying :lol:

Re: Helen Ploskina
Well finally Helen is doing well again! She won a G2 in Serbia and beat some really good players! :eek: She also won the doubles title with Rebeka Stolmar. I think she'll be just outside the Top 100 now. Great that she seems to be back on track. :yeah:
